Thanks So Very Much!

So, another card class online.  This time it's Altenew Academy's Seasonal Scene Building with the fabulous Nichol Magouirk as our teacher.

I'm only on Lesson One as I had a lot going on this past week.  I have the same stamp set she used--Altenew's Garden Grow.  I love this set as it is all outdoorsy with plants and such.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts called For Your Kindness.  The only other thing I used is the teeny, tiny musical notes stamp from WPlus9's Happy Mail set.

This style is outside my comfort zone as I am still on the learning curve with my Spectrum Noir markers AND I rarely make a one-layer card!   Yes, the card that is partially covered was my first one and I totally messed up the sentiment.  Had to make a little banner to cover it up, which is not what I would have done if I had planned better.  Oh well, that's what classes are for!  Overall, I think these are OK. :)

Thanks for taking a look!!  Have a great week!


  1. Overall I think these are GREAT, Carol! You get A+++!! And BTW, I really love your beautiful hydrangea cards, too!! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Beautiful scenes! Your cards are amazing! P.S. I landed here from Darnell's blog!

  3. I arrived via Darnell as well :) I LOVE those cards and your colouring is fabulous! Enjoy the class :)

  4. Hi Carol, I saw that Darnell had introduced you this week, and now I can follow you on your blog too! I think you have done a great job with building a scene and I love both of your cards. I rarely make these cards, but I should try. Definitely out of my comfort zone but Nichol is a master at them! Enjoy the rest of your class and I look forward to seeing what you make. Lisa
